I just got a treat where I didn’t think one would exist.
- My little niece, whom I’m around quite often, asked me to go to her open home at her university.
My first reaction was one of a little heartmelt with a hint of dread. I don’t have any children of our own and that’s entirely just fine. I like children but just haven’t the patience or focus required to be a parent. But, there is never saying no to that face. I showed up and the first thing that hit me was how completely comfortable it was in side. I mean like instantaneously. The air was crisp, clean and perfect Heating & A/C tested. It got me to stop and check our surroundings for a hour. This university was brand new. I think it was only the first year it had been open. My beautiful niece came running to grab our hand and drag me off for an amazing tour. This was nothing like the elementary university I went to. It had a gym, an auditorium and a appealing Barnes and Noble area. The Barnes and Noble was full of plants with floor to ceiling windows and sky lights all over. Her classroom was equally well done. She had a entirely ergonomically designed cubby/desk situation of her own. She was entirely proud. I noticed the classroom had its own thermostat on the wall. This was honestly amazing to me. Apparently, the entire university had separate Heating & A/C zones throughout each area. That meant her teacher could control the temp in her class. That had to be nice. Especially since the class faced a lot of direct sunlight.
